Two young area track athletes tried their hand against their peers across the nation last week in Myrtle Beach, S.C. at the USA Outdoor Track & Field Championships were for athletes ages 7 to 19.

Desert Vista freshman-to-be Danielle Jones, running for the Arizona Cheetahs, won the 800 meters with a furious kick in the final 50 meters when she went from third to first. Jones won in 2:17.61. She also was fourth in the 1,500 at 4:53.14.

Mountain Pointe freshman-to-be Derek Ware, also of Cheetahs, injured a hamstring in the preliminaries of the 100 meters, so he decided to take it easy in the finals and coasted to a seventh-place finish.

These should be two athletes we hear plenty about over the next four years.
